2011 Last Man Standing x ODNY from One Day NY on Vimeo.
2011 Last Man Standing comp put together by Victor Callender and Wheels In Motion went down without any problems. Despite the lack of support from a lot of people in recent days prior to the comp, New York City still made it a great event. Thanks to all of the skaters who showed up to support and all the major crews who made appearances. Our scene only keeps on growing and the prominent figures continue building–feels great to have everyone come together to make something out of nothing.

We went out shot some photos and b-roll for the video and kept linking up together afterwards to shoot some more photos of the cool weird stuff Ryan enjoys skating. One day he handed me his camera and told me to help film him. I was down to try filming being that all I've done with cameras is take photos. So from then on it was "I film, you skate." I Want to say thank you to my friend for being the one to let me use a real camera to give me a chance to learn what filming is. Its F&*$#3N great. For this edit we both went out for the past few months and gathered up all this footage looking and finding spots even making them in the most random places of New York City. Here it is folks, enjoy the creativity from both ends whether you like it or not.
Thanks for showing me not to ever give up in BLADING and in LIFE amigo.

- Downhill Runs
- 80's Rollerdisco

We all know its done to save the manufacturers some cash, and I get that. But when you’re the smaller size, this can be very detrimental to your blading.
I’ll use myself as the for instance. I like a lot of the styles of skates available. However, my feet do not. I just recently tried UFS thrones again, and love how they skate, but i don’t love the blisters i get from my feet sliding around in them. The width is perfect. The length is not, creating a constant rub issue on the sides of my feet, which leaves nasty blisters. This isn’t the first time I’ve had this issue with skates either.
Single size shells are very expensive to produce, and i understand that the money just isn’t there for a real solution like that. Salomon, however, already gave the market a cheap and easy solution in “growth inserts”. Simple idea, easy to produce, and relatively cheap compared to individual shell sizing.
Hopefully more of this type of tech will be introduced, as the blisters one gets from incorrectly sized skates are more discouraging than the injuries you get from bad falls, in my opinion.
Anybody else have input they’d like to add? Feel free. Any ideas are appreciated. Don’t get me wrong, i love my Xsjados, and they always fit right, but i would like to enjoy other options at times.

As the new Vii grey is coming out, I thought it would be a good idea to do an update of the Vii (black) skate I did on another messageboard. Here is my original review, posted 6/20/2011:
I know a lot of people are asking about how these things skate, so I'll try to answer a lot of questions in this review.
First of all, a lot of the curiosity is about the soulplate. Just like you can see from the pictures/videos, the soulplate is huge (bigger than the carbon plate), and has an amazing shape, especially it's groove. Before buying the vii, I was afraid the groove was too deep (like the 2-piece plate for UFS Thrones), making royale to ao topside tricks a little less fluid. USD adressed this, and made the groove wide and shallow, like the Deshi soulplate. This makes switch-ups, pretty easy, but doesn't take away from locking you in. Unfortunately, although the vii plate resembles the carbon plate, it feels like it is made from a softer, slower plastic. That's right, they are slower than I thought they would be, considering the carbon plates are pretty fast. If this is a deal-breaker for you, you might want to consider skating them with a carbon plate, though I don't know the sizing compatibility.
Second, the shell itself, imo, is the reason to get this skate. I have med to low arches on my foot, so many skates I've tried hurt my feet. I combined the vii with Blank liners and Superfeet insoles, and I have never had a more comfortable skate, ever! This shell is very accommodating, so I especially recommend this to people with wide feet. If you have a mid to narrow foot, get a liner that fits (I highly recommend blank liners), because your foot will have too much room with the thin stock liner. Or, you can downsize. The instep also flexes well, so there are no pressure points at all. Yet, with the flex, the shell is still solid and very lightweight.
Then there's the cuff. Unfortunately, the cuff is my only major complaint: it is cardboard. Think of a remz stock cuff....but softer. I can see why USD made the cuff so flexy, considering that they designed this skate for beginners; but I think beginners should have even stiffer cuffs so they can learn their tricks right! They aren't bad if you skate them as tight as you can. So unless you are Chris Haffey, who has transcended the need for ankle support, I would suggest swapping out the cuffs for something sturdier. For now, I have some RB cuffs on them, and they fit and work great. I wish Valo cuffs would fit-- they are perfect to me. I would even cut them to fit, so if anyone reading this has a spare set of 8-9 sized valo cuffs, I would buy them!
The stock type-M's and wheels weren't for me. I skate them with 50-50 balance frames w/ Eulogy wheels & Moonshine antis. I'm sure Create's would work & look good for this skate, also.
Overall, I really like this skate. I bought the skate for comfort and its light weight, and it definitely delivers. The skate will even surprise you, looks-wise. All my friends keep saying that they look better in person, and they do. As roomy as they are, they look surprisingly small and slim. Best of all, the design is very, very simple which makes the skate look even better, imo. If USD were to fix the cuff and make the soulplate a little faster, I believe they would make the perfect skate... at least for me. Oli, I hope you are reading this
My setup is a 8-9, with size 9-9.5 Blank liner:
^That was my review after skating them for a few sessions, about 3 months ago. The main reason why I wanted to do this update is because I thought that my original thread was a little misleading.
First, I may have not been clear describing the speed of the Vii plate. Yes, when I first skated them prior to my first review, they were definitely slower out of the box than the carbon plate. I was skating heavily waxed coping with my friends, and I had to cruise to get my brand new blades to slide as fast as theirs. However, after skating them for just 2 weeks, the Vii plate seemed to "break-in" and became fast...seriously. Judging from the wear of the plate, I still believe the Vii plate is softer than the carbon one (softer slides slower), but make no mistake-- work them in on some ledges and coping, and you will be satisfied. My soul plates are now pretty fast.
Second, I'm sure I gave some skateshops a big headache when I recommended putting carbon plates on the Vii's, and everyone kept asking if they could do that. At the time I said I wasn't sure about how they would fit, and I'm telling you now that they won't without modification. Carbons may fit the Vii plate, but not the other way around. Refer to the post that the good dude psyfron wrote:
I love the Vii soulplate and would say the only thing I don't prefer is that it might be too big. For locking souls, it's great, but the groove is very far from the boot, so you can't really get down low on your boot without lifting up the frame (I think this, and the fact I've been skating more park, is why it's been taking a while to put a decent groove in my frames). This is particularly true for Fahrvergnügens. This is where I prefer the carbon plate as it's groove is much closer to the boot. It's not even a big deal, just something to get used to.
Last, I mentioned how I didn't like the stock, flimsy cuff. First, I had some spare RB cuffs lying around, and they worked great, but there was a gap at the heel and the shape of the cuff constantly pushed my ankles forward. Someone mentioned that I should try Razor cuffs, because they fit without modification. A friend hooked me up with some SL style A4 cuffs, and they worked pretty good. In fact, I had been skating with these the longest. But, as you can see, the fit is still pretty weird, and I'm not too keen on the big graphics Razors loves to paint on their cuffs...
I got lucky and another friend gave me some cult shells and I used the regular-style Razors cuff, and those fit, feel and look soo much better. Proper support and great flex...shredding.
EDIT: big billy 13 let me know that putting the Razor cuff on the VII only works on the smaller sizes, i.e. 10+ size shells don't line up with the Razor cuff. I think it's due to the fact that Razor cuffs only come in one size.
Here are some pics of my current setup(s). Along with keeping the Blank liners and Superfeet, I think I have these blades dialed in just right:
Hopefully this update answers some questions. From what I hear, Oli says they've strengthened the cuff for the new grey ones, but we'll see.

Filmed by me, Chris Saccente, and Shawn Gradilone. Music by the Drums. enjoyy
Don and I filmed this in attempt to make him jump from flow to pro. Andy Wegener told him after the Accidental Machines premiere that if he kept up doing those big gaps there could be a spot for him on Razors.
1.5 years later Don leads the polls for the next Razors pro skate and hasn't showed any signs of slowing down. His pro Street Artist wheels, that's right 2, drop in 4 weeks.

This support is also intensified by the “ATOP-lacing-sytem”. The highlight: You tie up the lacing of the liner by turning a wheel. This newly developed system of USD comes from the Fitness-/Racing-Market and allows you to tie up the liner within a few seconds. Also loosen the laces by themselves while skating is impossible.
Hard landings are dampened by a shock absorber built into the sole. The toe area is completely made of neoprene, so the liner is very comfortable and adaptable. In addition, there is no longer a risk that deforms the liner in front with time. Also, the risk is reduced to stumbling your toes at landings or missed tricks. Of coure also mentionable is the excellent padding that keeps the foot into place.

This is IW Lance from www.inlinewarehouse.com all the way in California doing my first post here for Skate Sessions and I’m glad to be here.
Today I thought I could bring you a fresh new look for everyones favorite classic Remz Skate, The Haffey 2.2′s. As a skater of every Remedy’z product you could think of for the past 7 years I have to tell you I am thoroughly impressed with their new addition to the Remedy’z Line-up. The skate has a new color scheme and it happens to have my favorite color so I have to say personally its the best looking Haffey skate to date. It’s rocking the Black Skin with the White High Resistance Material and the Red stitching with a few red eyelets.
Overall they really improved on the lacing system which gives a lot more options to customizing how you lace your skates, wether it be loose or tight they feel amazing. With big improvements on the soft strap it is now triple stitched and add’s a lot more durability. They also come with the classic Rem’z plastic buckle system so if your a fan of that you can always switch it out easily for a more supportive feel.
The Liners are still holding up amazingly and the skate fits like a glove right out of the box. The V-cut is still very drastic so this isn’t a skate for the skaters that like their skates very supportive on the top side tricks.
The skates come with the GC Featherlite 2′s which everyone who has skated them has been pretty happy and it is an anti-rocker setup so this frame isn’t for all those freestyle/flat riders. They also come equipped with the Classic Rem’z wheels (57mm 88a) and some abec 5.0 bearings. The bearings are nothing impressive, as always I recommend upgrading to anything from the Bones line-up they make superior bearings that are water jet cut out of solid steel/ceramic, not just plates of steel cut and shaped. This makes for a much more solid bearing that have great longevity as well as incomparable speed.
As always with Remedy’z they have given us another solid skate with a very very anticipated color scheme change. I can’t wait to get out and try mine and I highly recommend these skates to anyone from intermediate to advanced level of skating that like a lot of freedom in their skate style.
I hope you guys enjoyed this and I look forward to giving Boston Blading Society that west coast style and I will be seeing you guys later.

"What Do You Believe In?" features five of the brightest stars in rollerblading: Brian Shima, Jon Elliott, Josh Petty, Rachard Johnson, and Jaren Grob. The video focuses on their skating, which is some of the best ever captured on film, but it is complemented by a surreal story line which weaves in and out of their sections.
"What Do You Believe In?" is not a narrative story in the conventional sense, nor is it a standard skate video neatly divided into rider's sections. It is a low budget, experimental, artistic interpretation of skating that does not merely break all of the rules but seems to be completely unaware of them altogether.
The skating alone would rank "What Do You Believe In?" among the best videos ever made, but add to that its artistic vision and its fearless conviction to add something completely new to the rollerblading landscape and what you've got is an instant classic. "What Do You Believe In?" is a landmark video and a must have for any rollerbladers collection.
Also check out this interview with Arlo, getting to the details behind this film.
Arlo and Shane's artistic work "What Do You Believe In?" broke the mold for what a skate video can be, and is still one of the most creative films ever made.
We bring you the film in AVI, M4V, MP4 and Torrent... so that you can enjoy it in any way you see fit!
Along with this great video, I'm dropping a collection of one of my favorite bands, and a Boston legend, The Sheila Divine. Hope you enjoy this band as much as I do, and if you do be sure to pick up their new album dropping this Fall.

The Carbon Free boot has been designed with a combination of Carbon, Fibreglass and Nylon which has allowed us to create the closest feel to Carbon while enabling us to lower the price and make it available for more people to enjoy this new feeling that everyone is talking about.
The Carbon Free Richie Eisler skate – tried and tested by the man himself – comes with US Poured UC Pro wheels (often considered the world’s best wheels) and the brand new Kizer 4 Fluid frame, making it by far one of the best quality pro boot setups ever released on the aggressive market.
